    A new poll published in Haaretz, the left-of-centre Hebrew daily newspaper, found that 69 per cent of Israelis think that Mr Obama's treatment of Israel was ''friendly and fair''.

    Roni Richtman, a 21-year-old student at Jerusalem's Hebrew University, said he appreciated the ''firm but understanding'' manner in which the Americans handled the dispute.

    Sarit Tamim, 56, said she didn't trust Mr Obama initially, but that he had ''grown to be a good guy''.

    ''He's been good with Israel so far … I thought he even could have been a bit rougher with [Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu,'' she said.

    Support for Obama up in Israel

    American Jews by a four-to-one margin, 82-18 percent, support the United States playing an active role in helping the parties to resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict, with 73 percent of American Jews supporting this active role even if it means that the United States were to publicly state its disagreements with both the Israelis and the Arabs.

    60 percent of American Jews believe Israel's announcement of new housing in East Jerusalem caused damage to U.S.-Israel relations, and 55 percent say the United States was right to strongly criticize the Israeli announcement of new housing in East Jerusalem during Vice President Biden's visit.

    Obama's approval rating among Jews is 15 points higher than among all Americans

    On the whole, Obama's popularity may be declining in American public opinion, but a sweeping majority of Israelis think his treatment of this country is friendly and fair.

    Oops, the American White Wing is at it again. Smearing the President of the United States of America with lies and slander. While they desperately attempt to take up the cause of the Jews, seems the Jews aren't having any of it. Worse for the Confederate Republican Party of Teabags, seems Israel actually LIKES Obama and supports him and the vast majority believe he is actually fair.

    At one time, his approval rating in Israel was a measly 6%. But now, none of the American White Wing's visions of Armageddon have come true. Israel knows the Wingnut White for what they truly are.

    If it keeps going on like this, like the boy who cried "wolf" and like the little chicken who thought the sky was falling, the Republican White won't be trusted by anyone, not even "teabags".

    This is one thread the White Wing wants to completely ignore.

    You mean Israel-firsters, NOT Republicans or conservatives.

    Uh huh, Israels papers start with headlines like, "24% of Israelis fear Obama", then in the rest of the Article, you find out that 67% like him. That's something FOX would do. But it's OK. I understand why those on the right lie. What else do they have? Not policy, obviously. Not a slam, merely an observation.
